Trump administration issues list claiming unsafe immigrants released by sanctuary cities

The Department of Homeland Security released its first "Declined Detainer Outcome Report", which highlights the counties around the country that are not cooperating with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detainer requests.

ICE says since local law enforcement agencies don't notify the feds when a detainer is not honored, the list includes declined detainers ICE personnel learned of during their enforcement activities. As NPR's John Burnett reports, "While 206 of these detainers were ignored, that represents less than 10 percent of the 3,083 detainer requests that were issued nationwide". Of those, 142 came from Travis County Sheriff "Sanctuary Sally" Hernandez' jail, Texas Governor Greg Abbott's office reported in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.

Such cities and counties, commonly described as "sanctuary jurisdictions", may not cooperate with the detainer requests for a variety of reasons. All of the detainers declined by Travis County on the federal list are dated February 1.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers escort an man who was arrested in a New York City apartment building. If ICE believes it has "probable cause" to believe that arrested person could be a deportable immigrant, it issues a detainer request. The fear is that if community members believed that if they interact with police in any way their information could be sent to ICE for potential deportation, regardless of the seriousness of a potential crime, they will be afraid to cooperate with police even in cases where they are helping to prevent and stop crime. Avideh Moussavian, a staff lawyer at NILC, said police often cooperate with federal law enforcement agencies on criminal matters, but emphasized that immigration violations are civil, not criminal. The crimes listed include drug possession, DUI, domestic violence, and aggravated assault. The weekly detainer report is intended "to better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions", he said in his executive order. There is also concern that because people may only be charged with a crime and not convicted, they could be deported before the conclusion of a trial.

Below is the list of the individuals released by the Travis County jail.
